Today I wanted to share a layout I created about my New Year’s Eve. I used The Bright Side collection, which, at first look, would be used for Spring or Summer photos. I love that Fancy Pants Design always tries to include basic and general paper so that their lines can be used for almost anything at any time!
I loved the green and black look, and that background paper is my favorite ever! The script writing is so fun and can be used for any subject!
I also added a piece of flair from theJoy Parade collection~ it was the perfect touch I was looking for and still worked with the new line perfectly!
I also added a piece of flair from theJoy Parade collection~it was the perfect touch I was looking for and matched the collection! Another great feature that Fancy Pants Designs offers…many of the colors from their collections are signature and can be used from collection to collection!
Last, I added some fun embellishments in the top corner for balance and that was it! Simple and fresh!
Thanks for joining me today on the blog and I hope you’ll love playing with this collection like I did!
Hello friends! It is a new year, 2018!! Did you pick a new years resolution? I have a challenge for you all. Lets use what we buy, more often. So to help you use up that 12×12 pattern paper, I have a tutorial on how to make a box from 12×12 paper. Then you just need some embellishments and ribbon to decorate, oh and a strong adhesive. For todays project I used the Little Flirty pattern paper from the Sweet Nothings Collection, as well as the embellishments.
First you need to score your paper at 3 inches and 9 inches.
Then rotate your paper, then score again, at 1 inch, 3 1/2 inches, 61/2 inches and 9 inches. This is also where you will use scissors, and trim away the left and right top 2 rectangle, and cut along the score line. You do not want to cut into the middle rectangles.
Using strong adhesive, place along the long folded pieces.
Hi there, Amy here to share with you how I spruced up some packaging using the Holiday Hustle line from Fancy Pants. This line comes with all the bells and whistles, which makes it so easy to add some fun and personality to your packaging.
Hello friends! Soon we will be celebrating the US Thanksgiving holiday. A lot of Americans like to decorate their homes with autumnal decor, and some have lots of friends and family over for a special dinner. To me Thanksgiving is all about family, friends, love, gratitude and giving thanks for blessings big and small…oh and of course the food. The project I am sharing today, is a fun way to create place cards.
Using several different collections, I grabbed pattern papers that remind me of fall.
To start each turkey, you will need 3 strips of paper in the following sizes.
1 in x 9 in
1.5 in x 9 in
2 in x 9 in
Each strip will be scored at 1/2 inch, and folded accordion style.
On each end of each strip, apply adhesive. Fan them into half circles. The 1 inch strip will go first, then the 1.5 in and then the 2 in. I started using the 1.5 inch, to ensure I had enough room for all three.
Using strong permanent adhesive, adhere each fan to Fancy Pants Designs corrugated paper.
Continue until all 3 are adhered.
Choose solid pattern paper, to create the turkey body, the beak, snoods and the feet. I just freehand cut them with scissors. You will also need a googly/wobbly eye, you can find them in any craft store.
Your turkey just needs a name and its ready to be placed on a plate.
This little turkey just makes me smile, and what a cute way to tell your guests where to sit.
Halloween is over, but it doesn’t mean the season over for the Spellbound collection. So I have created a few brown paper bags with a mix of the Spellbound collections and a few pieces from last years collection Golden Days.
These treat bags are nice little gifts to say thank you. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in Norway, but there is never the wrong time for gifts. Hostess gifts and other gifts are nice to have whenever you are invited over.
I used my Cameo to cut out leaves. I used the Internal offset feature to cut out a bigger and a smaller piece of the leaves. Then I pierced holes and stitched with a sharp orange thread for some extra contrast.
Just the two leaves weren’t enough so I wanted to make it even more interesting. I used a fabric leaf, a gold ephemere from the Golden Days collection and a few other pieces from the same collection. I just used my printer for the text Thank you.
For my other bag I went with slightly different colors, but in this one I also used a square ephemera piece in the bottom. From the Golden Days collection I also used a paper clip. I wis I would have hoarded these. I really love them.
FOr the text I cut it out on a watercolor paper and then I cut it out in a shape from an old template that I have saved. I loved this one old ephemera I had in this shape and traced it so I could use it for later. It’s not always about the look, sometimes it’s just the shape that I love.
Friends, did you know that in the Spellbound Collection from Fancy Pants Designs, there are Halloween themed treat sacks? There are! So, go find them and buy them now, because I think they are going to sell out quickly. These treat sacks are the perfect way to give away candy or a gift, whether it be for Halloween, or a trunk or treat, or a birthday party. Easy Peasy is the name of the game.
First I scored the bags at the 6 inch mark, to get a perfect fold. Then I added the candy to the bag, folded the flap and held it in place with one of the stickers that comes with the sacks.
Next I used the tags and ephemera packs from the Spellbound collection as well to decorate the bags further. One of the tags is actually from the Holiday Hustle line, it just happened to match perfectly!
